About the Berkhamsted and Hemel Hempstead Society

The Abbeyfield (Berkhamsted and Hemel Hempstead) Society Limited is part of the national Abbeyfield movement and is a charity which exists to provide high quality housing at a reasonable cost for elderly people.

Each house is run by a volunteer committee which enables us to keep our fees low and caring staff provide meals and support in a family atmosphere.

Each resident has their own en-suite room (or flat) to furnish as they wish and also use of communal areas including extensive well kept gardens.

Whilst we are not a registered care home and cannot provide personal care we do provide support and will work with residents and their families to ensure older people are able to retain their dignity and independence for as long as possible.

We have heritage at our heart
